I have worked with dozens of web designers and graphic artists from around the world, people I hired mainly from If you took the measure of talent present in all these people, then put it all together in one person, you would have the equivalent of the talent present in Barbie's little finger. You can't compare the skill in this woman with anyone else. She is in a class by herself. First of all, I live in California and she lives in Maryland. I talked to her once on the phone, but mainly just through my thoughts that came out of my passion to heal the sick as a doctor. I told her I wanted a brochure that would reflect the look of an apothecary from the 1800's with the beautiful graphics possible from the jet age digital world. I swear the lady read my mind. She started putting together ideas so fast, and so good that I thought I was dealing with a master of art, like the best of the best, whose talent was in a league all her own. She is better than excellent. Like meeting all the contestants in a Miss Universe contest, but there is one more beautiful than them all who falls in love with you. You score big time. She is so fast that I was up at 3 AM for four days in a row just trying to keep up with her. The project just kept getting better and better each day. I looked at her work in amazement. Like this was my soul mate of graphic art who delivered a product beyond what I could ever ask or think. There is no one like her. She deserves all the money in my bank account because the money I am going to make, and the people I am going to impress with the brochure she created for me, is going to make me rich. Well, my God will make me rich, but he sends these angels to do his will that make you better and happier just because her life touched my life in an extraordinary way. You have the princess of graphic art here in the person of this woman who will blow your mind with what she can do in Illustrator and Photoshop. I am already looking forward to the next project. I have been trying to put together the website of websites for three years. I have files upon files from all these losers from around the world, but watch Barbie take my ideas and create another masterpiece. That's what she will give you...a masterpiece that will help to put you over in your business...the right image, the right look, exactly what you need. I wouldn't waste my time writing this lengthy evaluation unless I was not completely, 100% satisfied with her work. I am the biggest fan of Barbie Harris on the earth. I found what I was looking for. Thank you Lord for my December Christmas present.

I just completed my second project with Barbie Harris. She designed a new label for my product line. Now, a label is not the most graphic exciting project to work on because the FDA requires a lot of boring information that consumes most of the space on the label. Nevertheless, Barbie managed to take a boring label and turn it into a blinking neon sign reminiscent of the Las Vegas strip. No one else but Barbie could pull this off. She is an extraordinary talent who has created a new image for my products through the outstanding brochure, and now label that she has created. This will soon extend to include the graphics for a new website, probably a poster, and who knows what else before all is finished. She works faster than you can blink, always gives you her best, and is more than able to give you exactly what you are looking for. I know, I have worked with dozens of graphic artist around the world. Everyone, except Barbie, have been 3rd rate at best. She deserves the highest praise for her over-the-top graphic art. In conclusion, she has now delivered two masterpieces. What more could I ask for! How often in life are you completely blown away by the work someone else does for you. It really feels good. Because everyone who looks at her work does a triple take and can't stop raving about the great skill and talent that she is. Everyone wants to know who she is and where she lives. That makes me look good, although I had nothing to do with the high quality of the work. I am going to make a ton of money using all these tools she is creating for me. That's why she is flooded with business. A person's gift makes room for them. Great people only come along a few times in a lifetime. Barbie is one of them.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and I'm extremely happy with our project. I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone looking for a graphic artist.

CJ and I have not worked together, yet; however, I look forward to working with CJ. We are in the introductory phase; we will start defining the scope of this illustration project, the schedule and all that encompass the outcome of the project. I'm eager to hire CJ as my illustrator, once we've met and discussed the details of my project.

I was working on a very tight deadline for my theatre company's season brochure and was in need of an illustrator that could understand my needs quickly and efficiently. I was very lucky to have found Joe through Thumbtack! I put out the request/proposal and received a response in less than 24 hours. I gave Joe a brief synopsis of what I was looking for (one of which was an illustration that could portray ACTION!) and was happy to get a sketch very quickly from Joe. He was incredibly decscriptive in telling me about how he imagined the final piece so I could have a full understanding while looking at the sketch. I was lucky that Joe was right-on on his first try and I made no changes to his sketch. The illustration turned out absolutely beautiful and promotes the play as exciting, inviting and fun! AND Joe was 1 week ahead of his deadline!!.. making my job even easier. I would recommend Joe to anybody or any company looking for an efficient, professional and incredibly talented illustrator. Plus, he was a pleasure to work with!

JEB Design does exceptional work! Joe is amazing! The illustrations he has provided for Crossroads of the American Revolution's Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors Project are outstanding. For this project we provided him with short bios about the "revolutionary neighbors" and from this information he created masterpieces that truly captured the essence of the stories we were trying to tell. His pictures truly are worth a thousand words! We continue to work with Joe as we add more revolutionary neighbors to our website and every time I think I have a new favorite illustration- he surprises me with something even better. I highly recommend Joe and JEB Design for all your artistic needs!

Joe recently designed a bicycle jersey as an apparel project for my company. Joe's work was quality, timely and professional. Communication was direct and consistent throughout the process including phone calls and emails, before, during, and after the design process. I would highly recommend Joe for his design work. Compared to other artists contracted for similar designs, Joe developed the final product much quicker and with no issues.

Dr. Ajao has been on point on every project he worked on for me. He is very responsive and professional. He's very personable and above all, extremely talented. He is open to your ideas and gives his honest opinion. He's been my photographer since 2009, taking both personal and professional pictures. He was the illustrator for the book cover of my historical fiction novel Thread of Gold Beads. You can't go wrong with Dr. Ajao.

I am a freelance illustrator providing businesses and individuals with illustration and graphic design services.

For over a decade, I have worked with nonprofit businesses, ad agencies, government contractors, and startup companies to successfully improve the way they communicate with their customers. I believe that effective communication starts with the speaker's ability to grab someone's attention. When I was in 5th grade, I did this by eating glue; however, as I reached my teens, I realized that my talents as an illustrator outweighed my appetite for Elmer's, so I started drawing pictures for my peers. When I realized how effortlessly the transition was between creating on paper and on a computer, it was natural for me to try designing as well. I believe that the best designers are the ones that can dissect the visual world and communicate it to others. If you are looking for an established designer or an accomplished illustrator, then you have come to the right place!

With a great design sense, I am capable of creating logos for businesses, illustrations for books and publications or hand lettering for invitations, menus, etc.
